David HONEYBOY Edwards – R.I.P.

HONEYBOYDescribing his Bluesman life: ” On Saturday, somebody like me or Robert Johnson would go into one of these little towns, play for nickels and dimes. And sometimes, you know, you could be playin’ and have such a big crowd that it would block the whole street. Then the police would come around, and then I’d go to another town and where I could play at. “

HILL COUNTRY BLUESMAN ~ Robert Wolfman Belfour

ROBERT WOLFMAN BELFOUR

Robert “Wolfman” Belfour (September 11, 1940 – February 24, 2015) was an Americanbluesmusician. He was born in Red Banks, Mississippi.[1] When he was a child, his father, Grant Belfour, taught him to play the guitar, and he continued his tutelage in the blues from the musicians Otha Turner, R. L. Burnside, and Junior Kimbrough. Kimbrough, in particular, had a profound influence on him. His music was rooted in Mississippi hill country traditions, in contrast to Delta blues. His playing was characterized by a percussive attack and alternate tunings.[2]
